Technological devices are being embedded as education tools in schools everywhere. It’s possible to overcome the fear of these devices and apps and incorporate them as instruments to serve educators, parents, and student learning. Lee Kolbert offers practical advice for using technology in healthy ways to engage everyone, deepen learning, and bridge the home and school technical divide.
Lee Kolbert is district manager of the Department of Educational Technology in Palm Beach County Schools and has been in education for 30 years as a classroom teacher and technology specialist. She is also a blogger for the Huffington Post. Lee loves bringing the benefits of social media to the classroom and helping teachers integrate technology seamlessly.
